Dinkar Dhawaskar started Balaji’s Cold Drinks in 1981 along with his two sons – Devidas and Deven Dhawaskar. Today Devidas runs Balaji Cold Drinks while Deven runs Balaji Bakery. Rare is a college student who has not sat sipping Limchi (a refreshing lemon juice flavoured with mint and ginger) while nibbling on patties at Balaji. The menu is expansive, ranging from samosas, patties, pizzas, burgers, rolls to fresh fruit juices and more recently, chaats and pav bhaji. “We are known for our customer service - we like to listen to our customers. We’re also very particular about hygiene, using only Sunflower oil and RO filtered water for cooking”, says Devidas, obviously proud of the legacy the brothers have created.
